Hailing from the NSW Central Coast, Zach Morris grew up idolising champion Nutri-Grain IronMen Shannon and Caine Eckstein. Fast-forward to today, the young IronMan has  notched two top-ten Nutri-Grain Series finishes and since relocated to the Gold Coast with his family. Morris now has his eyes on back-to back podium finishes and the opportunity to represent Australia in surf lifesaving once more.

Zach, how old were you when youstarted surf lifesaving and why?

6 years old. I joined because all my friends did it.

Who was your hero growing up in surf lifesaving?

The Eckstein brothers. I got a couple of photos with them when I was young and have looked up to them ever since.

What is the best piece of advice that you have ever been given?

“Go out there and enjoy your racing,” my Mum and Dad.

Your advice for aspiring Kellogg’s Nutri-Grain athletes?

Enjoy your training and racing.

What do you think about during a race?

“Finish the race.”

Zach, what has been a high and low in your IronMan journey?

High: Representing Australia

Low: Not too many lows just yet – but the early morning starts are always tough.

Do you have a secret talent?

I’m really good at solving puzzles.

How do you relax away from competition?

Watching Netflix, and eating chocolate and lollies.
